I have used OrCad Capture CIS and Layout before and the library system was fairly easy to follow. But I now need to use Allegro and Design Entry HDL for part creation
Can anyone tell me how the library structure is set out in these systems please. Where are footprints and schematic symbols stored within the library structure.
I need to create local ptf files, footprints and symbols. How are these stored? Is there a prefixed set-up.
Any help would be greatly received.
What process are you doing anyway?
In reply to Jefferson:
Looking forward to get new ideas from here.
To some degree, the answers to these questions will depend on how these libraries will be used. Will they be on a network and need to be accessed by others, or only used locally by you?
The short answer to the library locations is that they can be anywhere. They just need to be pointed to in the configuration/startup files. The long answer, depending on your answer to the above question, can be relatively simple, or quite complex.
